Psalms 54

Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.4 Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O Lord; for it is good.7 For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.

With the Christmas season and feeling overwhelmed, sometimes we get lost and think we don't have enough gifts....or the money to get presents for everyone or what everyone wants.  The best way to check ourselves is to remind us of all of blessings that we already have. Tonight before you go to bed, all I want you to journal is just to count all your blessings. As many as you can list.

Psalms 53

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.6 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Psalms 52

Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.2 The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.3 Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:7 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.

I believe that deep thoughts of self discovery helps a person grow spirituality. Today I want you to gain insight about what you think makes sin so desireable. And why people refused to change for Christ? Sometimes if we gain insight on why sinners do what they do, we see our our faults better. Faults that we didn't know we even had, and once realized we try to better ourselves and rid of them This is what I hope for everyone anyways. I don't want you to journal your sins, only why you think sin has so much pleasure.
